Market liberalisation will not harm Poczta Polska

The January freeing of the postal services market will not cause an increase in competition. Courier companies are giving up the fight over the letter delivery market. As of 1 January 2006, the Poczta Polska national postal service monopoly will be further limited. The weight of parcels reserved for it will fall from 350 to 50 grams. However, this will not cause a turnaround on the postal services market. Advances in IT mean letters are becoming less popular. Instead, companies choose the Internet as a means of sending invoices and other business-related documentation. It is possible that even 2009’s full market liberalisation will not tempt the courier companies: by that time, new and safer forms of electronic communication may have been developed. Courier companies believe that the new liberalisation only increases their safety margin.
